Default NB Chinook IPA - Comments?

I may give this a try. I'm looking for a hoppy but not way over the top hoppy beer. I'll be kegging.

I want to buy thru northern brewer.

Any other extract suggestions?

I was going to do the AG version of this. Would be nice to hear some results.

Is it an all-Chinook IPA? I brewed an all-Chinook pale ale and wasn't too crazy about it. Chinook is a love it or hate it hop imo.

It's great if you like Chinook, the fact that it's lower gravity than a normal IPA is a plus for me.

I was a little disappointed with it, but I've read posts where people liked it. There was no real hop nose, and I expected a stronger hop taste. Maybe I just don't like Chinook hops. It's definitely drinkable, but I've brewed better. I'm going to brew NB's Warrior IPA next.

Chinook will give you a very rough bitterness, but I like it!

I have brewed the extract kit from NB. It was over a year and a half ago, but I remember I liked it. It wasn't an over the top IPA, but it was an IPA, not an APA. Since I don't know you it's hard to say what you'd be happy with, but I can say that I ordered the kit based on the description in their catalog and I wasn't disappointed.

I say do it.
